Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  Scarlet fever happens due to a streptococcal infection. The treatment for it is 10 day course of antibiotics.  Along with symptomatic treatment.  As far as the diet is concerned.  You need to have a soft diet. Avoid oily and spicy foods.  Drink plwnty of fluids.  You can apply calamine lotion on the rashes. Consult a general physician in person for further evaluation and management. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
